The film IS a living narrative- a conversation. Their outlook, worldview, potential...and standards of living. Maybe you should watch it again and see if you walk away feeling like this is a way of life that should be propagated and defended (as you ludicrously imply with your defense of the decrepit souls depicted in the documentary).tyc367,
I'm from Manhattan, not the Town of Day. You know what they say about assuming... I think that's never been truer than in this case. My mothers family is from the Hudson Falls Glens Falls area. You are ignorant and offensive. The fact that you refer to the people in that film, and in the town now as "incestuous, sickly proto-humans" without having even had a single conversation with any of them just proves everything I said about you in my previous comments, so... thanks, I guess. You are a bad person, and I hope that the people from the town who read this thread don't take the ignorant bile you just spewed here to heart.
I know Glens Falls very well. Went to college with two kids from South Glens Falls. I'm not casting aspersions about where you Mom is from because Glens Falls isn't a sickly, hapless, hamlet that people are afraid of and make disturbing/saddening documentaries about!!!! Glens Falls is totally dissimilar from Allentown (which is considered Hadley, btw, not Day).
Grew up spending summers on Lake George. I've been to that area of Sacandaga and know the Lake very well, and (you must have missed it from one of my previous posts), unlike you, have met people from The Hollow.
In any case.....you keep saying "Who are you to judge?". It's called human well-being, sir. Or, conversely, wretchedness. Do you honestly need to be educated on the effects of generational inbreeding and the hell that it brings?
Speaking of which....you DO realize you're defending inbreeding here, correct? Let's just put that out there.
